While there is still lots of work to be done, I can say I think Discover 2016 at Amelia Island, Florida is shaping up to be one of our best conferences yet. Conference registration is now open, and the agenda for Discover is exciting.
We know from previous surveys that one of the best aspects of Discover is networking with SSN staff, product sponsors, technology partners and others in the advisor family. I take great pleasure in watching all these interactions and am thankful to be surrounded by professionals who have formed deep relationships. With such a diverse set of advisor businesses, I’m sure everyone looking can find tips and tweaks for their own organizations. We have some excellent keynote speakers lined up to share their invaluable knowledge of the economy and leadership in general. SSN staff will share what the firm is doing to continue to increase the quantity and quality of product and service offerings, and this year, we’ll have new product sponsors attending the conference. Their goal is to learn more about you and your clients’ needs so they can provide exactly what you need, and nothing you don’t, to most effectively service your clients.
As always, there will be lots of food, drinks and laughs, and we’ll again provide a “give back” opportunity. I sincerely hope that you, and your family, will attend and enjoy one of the best resorts on the east coast. And you won’t want to miss the “big reveal” about the location of next year’s conference location.
On a different note, in March, SSN was honored, for the fourth year in a row, as one of the Top Independent BDs, as rated by advisors, on www.wealthmanagement.com. To see the full article, go to this link to read more. The fact that our advisors took the time to vote and share their experiences means more to me than you’ll know. The recognition validates what we do day in and out to support your organizations. Please know that the firm is taking additional steps to enhance our product and service offering, including the expansion of our Technology, Operations, Compliance and Marketing departments. We are also working on the completion of upgrades to FOCALweb, which will further enhance your technology experience.
If we’ve done a good job for you, we’ll do a good job for an advisor you might know, so please don’t keep us a secret. Please contact Landon Moore at extension 354 or Landon.Moore@ssnetwork.com to discuss your ideas.
